The stretch of water is almost entirely covered by one peat around one meter and a half thick, floating on the water and leading to the acidification of its central part, contrasting with the mainly calcareous hydric inflows of the basin. The different level of acidity leads to the presence of an extraordinary variety of vegetal associations and a wide variety of species.
Among the marshy plants that can be found in the area there are Carixes, some of which are very rare, like the bog-sedge (Carex limosa) and the Fibrous Tussock-sedge (Carex appropinquata), Reeds and Gramineae. The pond houses the Broad-leaved Pondweed (Potamogeton natans), the very beautiful Bogbean (Menyanthes trifoliata) and some particularly precious insectivorous plants like the Round-leaved Sundew (Drosera rotundifolia) and the Lesser Bladderwort (Utricularia minor). In the surrounding humid environment there are different species of orchids belonging to the gender of Dactylorhiza and Epipactis.
The lake houses a rich zooplanktonic population with more than thirty different species, many invertebrates like larvae of dragonflies and mayflies, caddies flies, and lepidopters. Among the amphibians there are the Common Frog (Rana temporaria) and the Common Toad (Bufo bufo).
